  • An Amazing House in Paradise

    "This luxurious residence helped us have an awesome end to an already great trip to Costa Rica. After spending 4 adventurous days in the Arenal Volcano area, we spent the last 4 days of our trip relaxing in this spacious home in Manuel Antonio. Framed in wall to wall windows, we had a perfect view from every location to see the mountains to our right, the ocean in the distance and every shade of green around us. Sunsets were spectacular! We hardly wanted to leave as it felt like a piece of paradise right there with an elegant infinity pool and the sounds of the water falling to a smaller pool below the main floor. Wildlife surrounded us with many species of birds to view such as hummingbirds,macaws, melodious blackbirds, and Tanager’s. It was common to see black iguanas, lizards and a variety of colorful butterflies. We were lucky to spot a group of squirrel monkeys climbing on a nearby powerline. The AC was a huge plus in the private bedrooms but we opened up every door and window for fresh air with cross ventilation in the main area. Our girls felt they got the best room in the house on the bottom level. It was spa-like with the sounds of the waterfall into the smaller pool outside. All bedrooms were spacious and clean. Vanessa was there to greet us answering questions, getting us food, making reservations for excursions, and kind of at our beck and call. She recommended Chef Xavier for one day to cook meals. The kids all still say this was one of the best days of our trip. They watched him prepare each delicious meal! Well worth every penny. We are ready to go back…Pura Vida!"

  • you cant beat this place, reasonably priced, best location, spectacular view, wifi, mini kitchen

    "This was our second stay at the small penthouse owned by Marc. Once again, we loved it very much!!! My husband and I stayed here for about a week this time at the end of July and beginning of August. I had forgotten about how nice the view was. And then, there was the open air shower and the monkeys we got to see from our very large balcony. I noticed another guest's review that said something about the wifi internet not working and having a problem with the a/c. We didn't have any issues with the Internet or the A/c. Our wifi internet worked well. We were even able to call back home, via whatsapp; and the a/c was nice and cold. We actually noticed that it was a new unit. We remembered the old unit from last year. Well, as I said before, this was our return trip to this small penthouse. As before, the employees were very nice. They helped us with our luggage and did a quick check-in for us. Their level of attention exceeded our expectations. We like having our laundry done. The maid, helped us with that. She was shy but efficient and nice. She remembered us from last year. She did our laundry for $10 US dollars, folded it and returned it back to us on the same day. We drove from San Jose, so our complimentary parking spot at Marc's penthouse is right next door to the condo, at the upper level; which was very convenient. Security is 100% vigilant. Parking is very secure. We walked to the beach a couple of times, usually right after breakfast. It was about 20 minutes to the beach. You can take the bus or a cab if you prefer, but we were in for the nice walk. It was very enjoyable. We noticed they opened a small super market, clothing store, yoga studio, bank and ATM next door to the complex; a huge plus for the area. I don't think you can get a better place around for this price. We liked the new full size fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. It was nice walking next door to the grocery store, fill up our fridge with edibles and use the microwave on rainy days. Best location and view for sure. This is by far the best area of town, centrally located and where the best hangout spots are, including restaurants and night life. You are at one of the highest elevations in all of Manuel Antonio, so the view is spectacular all around you. You don't even need a car here. Marc, the owner, is a nice and friendly guy and responds very quickly. Thank you once again Marc. I hope I get to back next year for my third trip."

  • Beautiful and relaxing

    "We loved our stay at Casa Alta. There were five of us and there was more than enough room - the house could easily have held 2 or 3 more without feeling crowded. Our kids loved the pool- it was a nice size for the 3 of them to play in. The AC in the bedrooms worked well, and the WIFI was reliable. We were pleasantly surprised to find that all of the furnishings had been updated and the bathrooms renovated, so the house was even more lovely than in the pictures. The house is a short drive to the beach and to the park. We found it convenient to have a rental car--many of the restaurants and supermarkets are walking distance, but the car allowed us to do a variety of day trips to other parks and nearby towns. Natalia set up a night tour for us, which was amazing. We highly recommend the house- it met all of our expectations."

  • Amazing,Fantastic,Spectacular

    "Dear Ken and Kim, thank you so much for allowing us into your home, Casa Pura Paz is named perfectly. These 5 days Betsy and I spent with you were absolutely the most relaxing least stressful days for us in year's. For anyone considering visiting the Manuel Antonio area, I would strongly recommend Pura Paz! Every aspect of my visit exceeded expectations. The house was exactly as it looked online, except it looks 10 times better in person. You can be as active as you want to be or just stare at the view off the deck all day. The national park is a great outing, but you will see all the wildlife right off the porch!The scenery of the surrounding area is nothing short of spectacular, there are too many outstanding restaurants to name and all of them are minutes from the house. One of the many highlights of our visit was the day trip with Jose, having a casual lunch on his farm provided a real glimpse into the culture of Costa Rica. We will be repeat visitors! Thank you again. Charlie Keiger Charlotte, NC"
